How it works

Efficient remote access simplifies the integration of complex systems. For this reason, VPN connections to remote networks and control systems (PLC, HMI, KNX, etc.) are today a s tandard in the fields of industrial and building technology.

The HOOC technology offers a transparent transport layer and establishes a VPN connection to remote systems for users and applications.

System integrators and manufacturers currently face the following challenges:

  • Ensuring secure access methods and their supervision
  • Granting dedicated and temporary access rights
  • Documentation and management of access rights
  • No public IP, no changes to firewalls and routers, no port-forwarding needed

To master all these challenges, HOOC offers secure and surprisingly simple solutions for engineers, managers and users.

The HOOC Gateway establishes an encrypted connection to the HOOC Cloud terminates in a virtual and fully isolated network hub. When logging into the HOOC Cloud, every user is assigned specific access rights. Thanks to the HOOC App, users can now establish a VPN tunnel from their end device to the remote network and be on-site with just a click. Also using its scalable platform capabilities the HOOC Solution offers a series of innovative services, which all work according to the same principle.

The HOOC Cloud

The HOOC Cloud is a central part and the core element of the HOOC Solution. Here, resellers, users, sites and supporters are registered and managed. It’s also the place where all connections run together, access rights are granted and central services are activated. Using the management platform opens up the full potential of the HOOC Cloud. For this reason, the HOOC Cloud meets the highest expectations (equal to Swiss banks security policies) regarding data protection and infrastructure. We continuously implement and provide new functions and features to assure quality and innovation. We put special emphasis on high availability and security of all machinery and services managed on the platform.

The HOOC management portal is a central part of the HOOC Cloud and provides the following functions:

  • Central management of all resellers, clients and sites
  • Hierarchical user management and access rights
  • Provisioning and logging of temporary remote access rights
  • Monitoring of HOOC services and server resources
  • Provisioning of central applications
  • Two-factor authentication

At regular intervals, we provide new and improved features for the HOOC Solution. Maintenance is planned in a timely fashion and announced in the HOOC Management Portal. Beside the current status of the HOOC Cloud and services the latest events are also provided for later viewing.

  • Certified and monitored Swiss data centres (ISO and Finma compliance)
  • Automated processes for updates and disaster recovery
  • Encryption of all connections using modern sate of the art technologies
